NAME

       MPI_Info_get_valuelen  -  Retrieves  the  length  of the key value associated with an info
       object.

SYNTAX

C Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Info_get_valuelen(MPI_Info info, char *key,
            int *valuelen, int *flag)

Fortran Syntax

       INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
       MPI_INFO_GET_VALUELEN(INFO, KEY, VALUELEN, FLAG, IERROR)
            INTEGER        INFO, VALUELEN, IERROR
            LOGICAL        FLAG
            CHARACTER*(*)  KEY

C++ Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       bool MPI::Info::Get_valuelen(const char* key, int& valuelen)
            const

INPUT PARAMETERS

       info      Info object (handle).

       key       Key (string).

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

       valuelen  Length of value arg (integer).

       flag      Returns true if key defined, false if not (boolean).

       IERROR    Fortran only: Error status (integer).

DESCRIPTION

       MPI_Info_get_valuelen retrieves the length of the value associated with  key.  If  key  is
       defined, valuelen is set to the length of its associated value and flag is set to true. If
       key is not defined, valuelen is not touched and flag is set to false. The length  returned
       in C or C++ does not include the end-of-string character.

       If key is larger than MPI_MAX_INFO_KEY, the call is erroneous.

ERRORS

       Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and
       Fortran routines in the last argument. C++ functions do not return errors. If the  default
       error  handler  is  set  to  MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS, then on error the C++ exception
       mechanism will be used to throw an MPI:Exception object.

       Before the error value is returned, the current MPI error handler is called.  By  default,
       this  error  handler aborts the MPI job, except for I/O function errors. The error handler
       may   be   changed   with   MPI_Comm_set_errhandler;   the   predefined   error    handler
       MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned. Note that MPI does not
       guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
